Honey Suckle

I am working on a landscaping project where I am having to remove a lot of honey suckle prior to install of plants. Any ideas on how to remove it affectively. I have already cut most of it down and removed the debris.

Any thoughts?

it easiest to cut it at the start of heavy growth with shears and pull it all off at once like a big loaf of bread.

That is pretty much what I have been doing. I took my hedge trimmer and cut out 4 foot sections. Sides and bottom. Comes out like a piece of cake. Now I am down to the ground and it runs everywhere. I got to get it out somehow. I am on my way ot finish now. I will let you know how it goes.

Sorry i'm a little behind reading threads but I have tons of experience yanking this stuff out .I started 6 years ago on my 10 acres .only two options that work .cutting to root level then using a brush spray immediatly on the stump or yanking the whole bush out which is tough to do because of all the runners.All the old coots blame it's spread om an abandoned farm house up the road. The only thing worse is buckthorn which spread around here the same way.I'm sure when I get to hell that will be my job cutting buckthorn and honysuckle.
